What now?

After 4 years and a successful campaign to fund the first edition, The King and The Tree/ El Rey y el Árbol (a beautiful, colour, bilingual, illustrated, children's book, with an important message) is sold out!!!

Where to next?

Despite contacting small, local editorials and researching online printing options like amazon, in order to maintain the quality and sustainability of the production, I've decided to reprint and start a small editorial "Seedling Books".

This won't be possible without your support!

What a beautiful journey this has been! I am so touched by the support and encouragement I have received to make this project a reality and to create more books for the future. 2017 was a challenging year, but reaching the target to reprint "The King and The Tree" was a beautiful way to end it, and it is a wonderful way to begin to 2018.

Thank you to everyone who contributed, I hope to have the books and all other rewards ready by the end of January. Today I emailed a form to all the patrons to finalize names and dedications to print in the 2nd edition, it's an exciting step and we are very close to having the books ready!

Please fill in the forms asap.

May this year bring clarity, love, growth and connection. . . and may we never forget how to listen to the trees.

#02 / Ecology in Watercolours... /Ecologia en acuareles...

(Castellano abajo)

Crowdfunding is a very exciting and rewarding process! It empowers the community and small projects to start-up and grow without the need to risk going into debt or depending on outside sponsors (who often demand high paybacks and rights after the publication). and on a more social level, it creates a visible local network of gratitude and support, which is often missing in todays global-consumer market.

Personally I also find it incredibly encouraging to see how many small drops, when placed together, can create powerful magic!

My heart feels overwhelmed with gratitude each time someone has made a contribution this month!

SO CLOSE ... 5 more days!

If you would like to read more about my journey, you can read this recent interview and article published in Matrix online magazine, Barcelona. http://www.matrixbarcelona.com/transform/ecology-illustration-king-tree/
